Winning this competition will allow Create to set up a Makaton choir for adults with learning disabilities. The sessions will use this language programme which uses signs and symbols in place of speech to bring people together to enjoy music, singing, dancing and performing.  We will also be able to set up a variety of new activities including beauty and massage, rebound therapy, gardening, music therapy, outdoor sports and much much more!
